  • The Birches sponsors Alzheimer’s research education event Mar 10, 2015 5:44 PM
    On March 19, The Birches Assisted Living in Clarendon Hills is partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association and The Community House to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s research. As part of a series of Alzheimer’s Association education events titled “Alzheimer’s Research: Get Informed, Get Involved,” The Birches and The Community House will host a presentation by keynote speaker Kumar Bharat Rajan, Ph.D. from Rush University Medical Center. The presentation will take place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Community House, 415 W. Eighth Street, Hinsdale. Dr. Kumar Bharat Rajan will discuss current trends, efforts and directions in dementia research and will provide information about the benefits of participation in research and local studies. He will also be awarded a check for $49,957.00 through the New Investigator Research Grant program to fund the first year of his research titled “Role of Activities on Genetic Risk of Neurodegeneration by Race/Ethnicity.” At the end of the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to enroll in the Alzheimer’s Association’s TrialMatch program. The TrialMatch program is a free service provided by the Alzheimer’s Association that matches individuals with Alzheimer’s, caregivers, healthy volunteers and physicians with current Alzheimer’s studies. The Alzheimer’s Association’s TrialMatch database contains more than 225 clinical studies that are being performed at 700 trial sites throughout the country. Clinical trials play an important role in finding new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have already made great strides in developing treatments for Alzheimer’s. Drugs have been developed that can temporarily improve the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, but more research is necessary to develop treatments that slow or stop the progression of the disease. For clinical trials to be productive, volunteers are needed from a variety of backgrounds. Those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s play an important role in research, but researchers also need volunteers without Alzheimer’s. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, recruiting and retaining trial participants is the greatest barrier to finding new Alzheimer’s treatments besides funding. “I think raising awareness about the need for volunteers in clinical trials is important,” said Birches’ Director of Encore and Memory Care Services Jackie Raschke. “A lot of people would love to help find a cure for Alzheimer’s but don’t know what they can do. TrialMatch gives people a concrete way to contribute.” This event is free and open to the public. To register, call 847-933-2413 or register online at www.alz.org/illinois. The Birches Assisted Living in Clarendon Hills is a premier retirement community dedicated to providing professional services that support its residents’ physical, social, intellectual and spiritual growth.

  • NNHS Fine Arts Students Sweep IMEA Top Honors Mar 10, 2015 5:48 PM
    TEN NAPERVILLE NORTH HIGH SCHOOL FINE ART STUDENTS RECEIVE ILLINOIS MUSIC EDUCATORS CONFERENCE TOP HONORS Naperville, IL, January 2015 – Naperville North High School is proud to announce ten students have been awarded All-State Honors at the annual competition of the 2015 Illinois Music Educators Conference sponsored by the Illinois Music Educators Association. (IMEA). Thousands of students take part in the Illinois Music Educators Conference (IMEC) held in Peoria every year. The competition sequence begins in October when music students from every Illinois high school audition for their local district festival. Qualifying students move on to the district festival held in November. Those students considered to be the most highly skilled in their district go on to state level auditions in January. State level auditions determine whether they are in the All-State group or, the top group in the state, the Honors All-State ensemble. This process provides powerful educational experiences for all music students across the state. Dana Green, NNHS Orchestra Director, is proud that faculty in all three disciplines, Band, Chorus, and Orchestra, at Naperville North work hard to elevate the level of performance of each individual musician. “The skills instructors work on in our ensembles give our students the leg up they often need when competing with the state’s best musicians. Ultimately, it is because we have some of the hardest working students in Illinois at Naperville North High School that we are able to be as successful as we have been on the IMEC stage. It’s astounding to have Naperville North students sitting principal in three sections of the top state orchestra. That two North students auditioned successfully into the All-State Honors Combo is just as incredible. And that all three musical disciplines are representing our program at this prestigious conference is fantastic!” Instructional Coordinator of Fine Arts and Music Director, Nicholas Janssen, said, “ This is exciting as not only were these students among the top scores in the state to even be selected for the conference, but Taylor, Alec, Tolya, and Max had the single highest score on their instrument. This is a great day for NNHS Fine Arts!” Kevin Pobst, NNHS Principal, congratulated the students and commended them on their high level of skill. Congratulations to the following NNHS students for winning top honors in the Illinois Music Educators Conference in Peoria, Illinois: Carly Daugherty, All-State Honors Band, Clarinet Shannon Keegan, All-State Chorus Ian Henning, All-State Honors Chorus Tolya Kuznetsov, All-State Honors Orchestra, Principal Cello Maxwell Lowery, All-State Honors Orchestra, Principal Viola Paul Beckman, All-State Honors Orchestra, Principal Percussionist Natalie Piehl, All-State Orchestra, Cello Aditi Prakash, All-State Orchestra, Violin Taylor Kroma, All-State Honors Jazz Combo, Bass Alec McKeska, All-State Honors Jazz Combo, Guitar Naperville North High School is dedicated to the performing arts and believes academics and the arts are equally important to student development and achievement. Thank you, Sue Frazzini North Performing Arts Center Marketing Director npacmarketing@gmail.com 630-779-6204

     
  • Benedictine, John Marshall offer dual M.B.A./J.D. degree program. Partnership gives students competitive edge in business and law Mar 10, 2015 5:50 PM
    Individuals seeking a graduate degree to enhance their careers should consider Benedictine University’s new dual Master of Business (M.B.A.) and Juris Doctorate (J.D.) program with John Marshall Law School. After meeting admissions requirements at both schools, students can take classes at John Marshall toward a law degree and at Benedictine toward earning an M.B.A. “This program is fully integrated for students seeking degrees in both law and business to gain an advantage in today’s global business environment,” said Rick Holman, assistant professor and chair of Benedictine’s Graduate Business Administration program.”Benedictine is providing an opportunity for students who have an interest in the area of management whereby the combination of a law degree and an M.B.A. degree will give them an advantage in the corporate world.” As students continue to grow in business through market uncertainty, global competition, ethical challenges and constant change, the M.B.A. and J.D. dual degree will help Benedictine students develop quantitative, qualitative and legal competence as professionals who can assess business risks and strategic alternatives, Holman said. Students enrolling in the dual degree program can attend classes part-time or full-time. However, full-time law students must attend the first year of law school exclusively at John Marshall. After successfully completing the first year of law school, the student can combine law courses with Benedictine M.B.A. courses for the remainder of the program. Part-time students can attend classes simultaneously at Benedictine and John Marshall. Benedictine University, an accredited, nonprofit private Catholic institution which has been providing graduate business programs to adults for more than 50 years, believes that a quality education and an advanced degree should be both accessible and affordable. Though some other higher education institutions also offer dual M.B.A. and J.D. degree programs, Benedictine’s emphasis on values-based education is a distinct advantage as global corporations place greater emphasis on the correlation between ethical behavior and more sustainable and profitable results. Students within Benedictine’s M.B.A. program can customize their program to fit their needs. Courses are interactive, taught by faculty and instructors who are practicing professionals and provide real-world business planning and strategic management experiences. Both Benedictine and John Marshall accept applications on a rolling admissions basis throughout the year. Applicants seeking information about Benedictine’s M.B.A. program can visit ben.edu/mba or contact Admissions at admissions@ben.edu or (630) 829-6300.

    A Lisle letter to the editor: I don’t see why major-league baseball wants to speed up the pace of the game. Watching players spit, chew sunflower seeds and unwrap and rewrap their gloves every time they stand near the batter’s box can be quite entertaining.
